Important Information

  • Instructions on how to download the statistics into a spreadsheet are contained in Downloading Statistical Information.
  • This page is best printed in landscape mode.
  • The figures in the report include only those services that are performed by a registered provider, for services that qualify for Medicare Benefit and for which a claim has been processed by Medicare Australia. They do not include services provided by hospital doctors to public patients in public hospitals or services that qualify for a benefit under the Department of Veterans' Affairs National Treatment Account.
  • Services/benefit per capita (ie. per 100,000 population) is calculated by dividing the number of services/benefit processed in a month by the number of people enrolled in Medicare at the end of that month.
  • State/Territory is determined according to the address (at the time of claiming) of the patient to whom the service was rendered.
  • Month is determined by the date the service was processed by Medicare Australia, not the date the service was provided.
  • Monthly figures may vary due to the varying number of processing days in a month, which depends on the number of days in the month, public holidays, overtime worked etc.
  • A financial year is 1 July to 30 June.
  • Detailed information on the Strengthening Medicare - Additional Incentive Item numbers can be found under Table 6 of the Monthly Quarterly Standard Reports. Please note, in this report, the number of services for these item numbers are recorded as '-' because they are not Medicare services, simply an additional payment.
